Hi Dad! I LOVE YOU! Happy Father's Day!

Well today was Marcus' thriller day (non-soccer thrills)!  We got up early and drove an hour to Mosselbaii. This is where the Great Whites like to visit an island full of fur seals, we are insane.
It is very difficult to manipulate a camera while a giant shark is swimmimg by you so the underwater videos are not good. Marcus and I were unsure if we would actually get into the water with the sharks but after waiting for 2 hours for them to arrive, and seeing them from above, it was a must-do! Unfortunately there was not a wetsuit to fit Ian so he saw them from above and took lots of pictures. Griffin and Radley and I went into the 6 man cage together. Marcus went with 5 other people and got the BEST experience. The shark BIT the cage! AAAAAAAAH!  Tonite hanging out in our B&B- no one here but us!  Enjoy the pics & vids!

Wir freuen uns mit euch, daß ihr solch wundervolle Tage voller Erlebnisse genießen dürft und danken euch, daß ihr uns daran teilhaben laßt. Es ist bestimmt traumhaft, nicht nur die Atmosphäre bei den Spielen mitzuerleben (ihr seht unglaulich gut aus in eurer Fan-Aufmachung, habt ihr das alles mitgebracht oder vor Ort gekauft), sondern auch noch etwas von Land und Leuten kennenzulernen. Habt auch die nächsten Tage Spaß und wir freuen uns auf Mittwoch, mit euch das nächste Spiel zu erleben, wir in Bühl vorm TV und ihr live in Afrika. Alles Liebe eure Schuhs
